Does anyone know.....

Hello all! Does anyone know of a system I can attach to the trailer to push or pull it by hand? My trailer weighs 6200 lbs. and I can't seem to maneuver my SUV without going up on my neighbors lawn. Do they make a system that I can wheel it by hand?

Google "electric trailer dolly" or mover and the list will go on and on. Be prepared for sticker shock from $1000 to over $3000. Things could be worse .... the neighbor could move his mail-box to that spot.

Thanks Hank, this is true, glad there is no mailbox! Well, it's better than paying monthly for storage.

Would a front hitch on your tow vehicle help. I have had 2 on different trucks.

I got over 4 million hits when I googled rv power dolly. I bet you can get the same results.

While I don't need one of these for my TT, I use a front hitch (attached to a tow hook) for putting my boat away.
